Love my Diesel Jetta
By Dan on


2004 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Well, no matter the fuel costs,
$1.59/gal(june04) or $2.09/gal(12/04),
I get the advertised 38mpg city, but
set at cruise, 65mph Hwy, I get 52 mpg.
The overall comfort is very good, but
the front seat shoulders should curve in
more as being 5'-4" I don't get full
effect of seat comfort. Interior
controls are very easy to use w/o
affecting driving, rear seat leg room
cramped a bit, but manageable. I
sometimes get "creaking" noise in
doors, but I WD40 the hinges and that
stops. LOVE the interior control
It's fun to drive all the time. I look
forward to driving it. Handles all
curves excellent, even at 45 mph.

Best Features

The 5 speed manual shift. Very smooth shifting and quick response. LOVE the dash/interior controls lighting.Very easy on the eyes. Wow, the trunk space is surprisingly large.

Worst Features

Front seat shoulder (and back) comfort. Shoulders should curve in more as being a short person, I don't get full comfort affect of shoulder/back support. Overhead map lights could be brighter.
